Dirt and Traffic With That Brooklyn Park?

One Brooklyn Bridge Park

Today's post is reporting that the early part of Brooklyn Bridge Park's life could be full of construction activity as the stretch of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway that runs above it is rebuilt. In addition, Furman Street will likely be used as a detour for traffic turning it into one very busy roadway. The bad news is reported in today's Post:
The restructuring of a busy 2-mile stretch of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway could wreak havoc on the planned Brooklyn Bridge Park - both for visitors and the owners of luxury condos to be built there, a recently released report suggests.

The state-commissioned report on the BQE Triple Cantilever Project - which would rehabilitate or replace the split-level portion of the highway between the Brooklyn Bridge and Gowanus Expressway - suggests the new park could be a "staging area" for construction equipment, The Post has learned.
Should all be cleared up by 2012 or 2015, give or take.
